“In our over 35 years of presence, we have always placed our guest in the very core of our existence. We want our world-travelled visitor to leave feeling genuinely happy, and to accomplish that, we always ask ourselves: what do travelers want when on holidays in Greece? Great food always lands on top of our list,” he added.
